 Hello fellows, I hope you all are doing great. In today’s tutorial, we will have a look at Difference Between Speed and Velocity. . We can find the movement of an object with the calculation of distance completed by an object in a given time interval called speed. The speed is sometimes considered similar to the velocity since these 2 have some similarities. But these are different parameters of motion in science.

Velocity is a calculation of distance covered by a body in a certain direction. In today’s post, we will have a detailed look at both these factors of motion and their relationship with each other. So let’s get started with Difference between Speed and Velocity.

#### Difference between Speed and Velocity

Speed

• Distance traveled by an object in unit time is called speed.
• Speed tells about how fast someone is moving.
• It is a scalar quantity.
• the speed formula is s=d/t here s is speed d distance t time
• its dimensiosn is M0L1T-1
• main 4 types it has
• uniform, average, instantaneous, variable
• equal distance in equal time called uniform speed
• same time is taken to  cover different distance called variable
• total distance to total time ratio called average speed
• Speed taken at any time called instant speed
• A speedometer is used to speed measurements.
• It denoted the rapidity of a body.
• It is a rate of change of distance.
• If the body covers some distance and moves back to the original position its distance speed will not be zero.
• The speed of moving bodies is not 0.
• Its SI unit m/s.
• Anybody can have different velocities but has the same speed. Velocity

• The rate of change in the position of the body with time is called velocity.
• It is equivalent to the body speed feature having direction and movement.
• It mostly used in the science field of kinematics.
• It is a physical term that has velocity tan magnitude.
• Its unit is m/s other units are ft/s, km/h
• Average velocity is Δv=Δx/Δt
• angular velocity is ω=Δθ/Δt
• If the body has zero distance its velocity is zero velocity
• The velocity measured between two objects called relative velocity.
• Its dimension is LT−1
• The moving body has zero value of speed
• Change in velocity called acceleration
• Speed measured at any instant of moving object called instantaneous speed
• The product of mass and velocity equal to the momentum.
• It is a vector quantity.
• It denoted the rapidity and location of a body.
• It is the rate of change of displacement.
• If the body covers some distance and comes to its original position its velocity will be 0.
• The velocity of moving bodies can be negative, positive and 0.
• Its system international unit is m/s.
